Grievous Wounds

From Diablo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Grievous Wounds is a rune effect in Impale, a Hatred-spending Demon Hunter skill.

This rune effect triggers 100% additional damage with any critical hits scored by the attack. As Critical hits are triggered around 15-25% (varying by level and equipment), this should kick in for substantial damage fairly regularly.

The tool tip is quite vague, and testing is required to see what the actual damage is.

  1. Does it mean 100% more weapon damage, taking it up to 350% weapon damage?
  2. Does it mean 100% more skill damage, doubling the attack to 500% weapon damage?)
  3. Does it mean 100% more total damage, including multipliers from Dexterity and the other factors that create the actual damage you see in the pop up number in-game?

As the original rune description (see the Development below) stated "500% weapon damage," it seems that option #2 is the most likely.
